Ashtar provides a systematic and detailed examination of the passenger hoist and all its associated equipment. Its aim is to detect any defects which are, or might become dangerous to anyone, and for the competent person to report them to the client and, if appropriate, the enforcing authority so that appropriate remedial action can be taken.
Ashtar determines the extent of the thorough examination, the competent person will assess the risks, considering factors such as where the hoist will be used, frequency of use, age and condition, the weight of loads to be lifted, etc.
Ashtar conducts drop testing to check if the safety device is working properly and will perform properly when needed.
